Description

A demon or unrighteous spirit in Hinduism that feeds on human flesh. They are shapechangers and magicians, and often appear in the forms of humans, dogs, large birds, or other animals. They can make themselves invisible and can not enter a home without being invited. Many Rakshasa were particularly wicked humans in previous incarnations and are known to disturb sacrifices, desecrate graves and possess human beings. Translated to English, Rakshasa means injurer. Rakshasas are also called man-eaters (Kravyads). A female Rakshasa is called a Rakshasi, and a female Rakshasa in human form is a Manushya-Rakshasi.
